  • I went the day I found out I was pregnant, and continued to do so until 4 days AFTER he was born. (We stopped on the way home from the hospital, an action I do NOT reccommend after having a c-cection. OUCH!)

  • I'm not going shopping til I find out what I'm having may 8th..I get so overwhelmed going into the baby sections at stores and seeing blue and then pink..and not knowing what im having=[
    but, diapers, wipes and all those necessities, i already started shopping for.
    I don't see anything wrong with shopping now. After all, you are 4 months. Congrats=]

  • You are past the danger zone of miscarriage so I would say you are in the clear to start shopping! :) It really doesn't matter how early you decide to start picking out things but for me, I didn't want to even look at any baby clothes, furniture, etc. until I was out of the first trimester.

  • Never underestimate the amount of diapers you will use. And dont just get newborn, get size 1 just in case too. Oh yeah, and some laundry stain removal spray. Go nuts!!
